StencilGirl Face stencil by Andrea Matus DeMeng looking like Frida

I'm doing a series of faces using the same stencil by Andrea Matus DeMeng provided to me by StencilGirl Products.  This is to demonstrate how with just one stencil many different looks can be achieved.  The one I'm sharing today is my take on the artist Frida.

As mentioned before, after designing my master board type face design I just made a few changes on the photocopied face and added a collage of deli paper flowers and a few paper flowers made by Prima.  Her eyes are actually Jane Davenport's washi tape eyes.

I hope you'll play with this idea and just have fun with it.

More Stenciled faces using Andrea Matus DeMeng's stencil

I used the StencilGirl Products face stencil by Andrea Matus DeMeng to make more faces.  This is to demonstrate how the same stencil can be used for a completely different effect.

The headpiece is stenciled from the hem of  Sue Pelletier's baby dress stencil.  I've used a lot of random stencils in the background also.  The paint is Dina Wakley heavy body acrylic paint in Turquoise, Ruby and Night with touches of white gesso.

I hope you'll make faces along side me with stencils, it's addictive.

Thanks for stopping by ~ Renee

I'm the Guest Artist this week on StencilGirl Products! A Tangled Face

If you follow my blog I'm sure you've noticed that I'm in love with stencils!  So you can imagine my delight when StencilGirl Products asked if I would like to be their Guest Artist, my response was a resounding "YES".   I mean who could say no to that?!  They provided the stencils of my choice to work with and I very happily choose  Andrea Matus de Meng's "Abigail, A Timeless Woman" in the large 9" by 12" size.  This is what my finished portrait looks like, it's called "A Tangled Face".  The process is shared on the StencilGirl Talk blog today, please just click on the link if you would like to check it out.

I'll be sharing a few more portraits during the month of April, all created with the same stencil but each one looks completely different.  I hope you will pop in and take a look at them.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hugs ~ Renee
